2016 Fee Schedules
The revised 2016 Medicare Physician Fee Schedules (MPFS) are now available on the WPS GHA website. The fee schedules, effective January 1, 2016, are posted by state and locality. If you are unsure of the locality for your location, please see the Fee Schedule Localities web page.
ICD-10 Laterality and Use of Modifiers
One of the features available in ICD-10 is the ability to choose a code that identifies laterality (i.e. left, right, bilateral). The use of lateral ICD-10 diagnosis codes does not negate the use of the LT/RT modifiers. For Medicare claim processing purposes, it is imperative to report an appropriate LT or RT modifier when submitting such services to WPS GHA.
Internet-based PECOS - Faster and Easier to use than Paper-based Enrollment
